Fly Lines & Backing 

New Nano Coating Technology pushes fly line performance to the extreme. 

The pictures don't lie - our latest tech has made our top performing XS Fly Lines softer, more supple and longer lasting than ever before. And there's more to come. 
New Nano Coating Technology (NCT) has enabled us to produce the softest, most supple, best casting and longest lasting fly lines in our history. The smaller nano particles result in a silky smooth surface finish and a more dense material. So whether sinking or floating, the XS fly lines now have a finer, more durable silky-finish profile which exceeds even the legendary performance of the original XS lines. 
 
The images opposite were taken using an electron-microscope. The emphasise and illustrate the vast improvements of the new technology over the old. The results have been outstanding, maintaining profile and design, which is crucial, but enhancing the previous performance. 
 
We have not stopped at Nano Coating Technology either. Always looking for continuous improvement, there are tests currently being made on an even more advanced nano-technology that is set to take Snowbee fly lines to yet another level, being even smoother and even more advanced than ever before - watch this space.

Thistledown 

'Awesome', 'Sensational', 'Outstanding' are just a few of the descriptions that have been fed back to us by early users and top anglers worldwide who have been involved in testing this new version for us. Now with zero memory issues, a finer but stronger core and more supple than ever before, this line is set to exceed the performance of even the best selling original Thistledown. Due to improved core technology, it has a thicker outer coating, allowing it to float higher despite having the same diameter. It will last longer, but still has the same profile and performance befitting its name. It casts and delivers with the proverbial "Thistledown" delicacy and precision one would expect from such an elite and aptly named new fly line. Rated from #2-5wt for the single line, the new Thistledown Plus will perform outstandingly on any fly rod rated between AFTM #2 and #5, regardless of its length. It takes some believing, but once you've tried this line for yourself you will see exactly what we mean. 
Thistledown2 Fly Lines
Zero Memory issues, a finer but stronger core and more supple than ever before, this line is set to exceed the performance of even the best-selling original. 
A warning on copies. 
if your line doesn't come in a Snowbee box with either two braided loops , or a welded/whipped loop at either end, then it is not a Snowbee fly line. Being a brand leader leaves a company open to copyists and we have seen our fair share of counterfeit fly lines on the market this past year or so. Remember, all genuine Snowbee fly lines will only be supplied in welded bespoke packaging and will be clearly distinguishable by the branding. All our XS fly lines, since 2015, have been made using the new extra smooth and longer lasting nano Coating Technology and each box is clearly marked to confirm this supreme finish. 
Welded Loop
It comes down to simple physics and the optimum diameter and profile creates hardly any drag when casting. That means the 'load weight' factor becomes less critical to casting performance and the nominated rod weight becomes less important in achieving the cast. The new and refined components for these lines, being Core, Primer and Nano-Tec coating, combine to give the thinnest, most supple , weight forward profile possible. They still weigh very little but deliver incredible stealth and accuracy at the same time. The silky smooth finish and the thin diameter means the line speed can be maintained throughout the casting action and delivers the fly precisely where required, with minimum effort. Even across a gale force wind this line has been used to great effect and will cut through almost any breeze with its drag coefficient being so small. 
Thistledown was primarily designed for river and light fishing on small stillwaters but is now a regular companion on almost any application where an angler enjoys lightweight finesse, stealth and accuracy. For the heavier performance longer leader, heavier flies set up, associated with stillwater fishing, there is now the Thistledown² in the heavier #5-#7wt option. Both the lines are two-tone in colour, Shamrock Olive head with Buckskin running line. 
This line has proved ‘astounding’ to many so far, been on the receiving end of countless rave reviews since awarded Best New Fly Line in Europe at EFTTEX 2014 and production remains at full pace to keep up with demand!

Simon Kidd
"It was like nothing I had used before, soft, supple, totally memory free and effortless to cast the fly wherever I needed it. I then discovered there was a whole range of nearly 50 XS lines of similar superb quality. Suddenly my whole fly fishing experience became transformed... now today that technology has moved on yet again. The new Thistledown and its derivatives are quite extraordinary, marking the introduction of a whole new era in Snowbee fly line technology and performance”. 

Specialist River Fly Lines 

Whilst this line may not perform in casting like a conventional weight forward, when used on a long light rod, one can achieve incredible control at range and with long tapered leaders whether ‘light nymphing’, ‘Juan Style’ with dries or short range ‘Czech-nymphing’, the control and sensitivity that can be achieved is extreme!. With a long fine leader, it is possible to present a fly at a range of up to 40ft with no fly line on the water whatsoever. Control of Tenkara proportions perhaps, but with a reel for even greater diversity, control and casting where required. When doing so it is a pleasure too and having no heavy ‘weight forward’ profile the line does not slide back down through the rod rings either! Using this line can be an art but in the right hands, extreme finesse and induced take methods can be applied for incredible success on the most difficult and wary of fish. 
Colour: Hi-Viz Orange/Tan 
Available in three sizes only: DT2/5 Floating 
 
DPF XS Delicate Presentation Floating 
This line was originally designed for ‘Thistle Down’ presentation on rivers but if anybody thought that rivers were the limit with this line they would be mistaken. The Continuous Rear Taper (CRT) profile has surprised many when demonstrating and on still waters where dry fly casting, using the #5 to #7wt versions, has proved effortless. 
 
Colour: Pale Olive 
Sizes: WF2 - WF7 
 
 
DTF XS Double Taper Floating 
Incorporating all the superb properties of the original Snowbee XS Weight Forward Floating line, but in a Double Taper profile, for the traditional angler not yet converted to the Delicate Presentation where fly presentation is still everything. Great for delicate spider and dry fly fishing in particular. 
 
Colour: Ivory 
Sizes: DT3 - DT8 
 
 
For enhanced performance and extended life, each fly line comes with a specially formulated bottle of Snowbee line care, plus two loop connectors in appropriate sizes, to be used with the enclosed line. Be sure to read the instructions on how to get the best performance with your new Snowbee line. 

Snowbee XS Floating Fly Lines 

Designed by us nearly 25 years ago and still reputedly the best traditional fly line on the market today. 
Over the years there have been minor changes in production and last year's Nano-Technology is a winning formula across the range with its unmistakable profile and suppleness. In using this new technology, we have refined the original formula and manufacturing techniques to enhance the already superb, supple, memory-free performance so loved by fly fishers worldwide. 
Three years ago the Snowbee XS Ivory Floating was our top selling line, and reputation has it as still the best-selling floating line in the UK. If you don’t already know why… just try one and you will soon find out! 
XS Floating Line family
WFF XS Floating 
The flagship of the range, the original ‘Prestige’ Fly Line. Without doubt one of the best floating fly lines available today.

Colour: Blue/Ivory 
Sizes: WF3 - WF8 
 

XS-Plus Nano-Tec Fly Lines 

EDF XS-Plus Extreme Distance Floating 
Following the remarkable success of the Snowbee XS Ivory and then twin-colour lines, the XS-Plus Extreme Distance is another award winning fly line for Snowbee. Now with a #5wt version, this has proved to be one of the ultimate distance casting lines ever made. Distance casting made easy. 
 
Colour: Ivory/Peach 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
 
 
Overhead casting is possible, when used from bank or boat but for optimum performance the head is so weighted that it best casts off the surface of the water rather than time consuming and labour intensive overhead. This means the line is perfect for performing below a dam-wall or tree lined margin for example.  
Awarded ‘Best New Fishing Product under £50' at the Tackle and Gun show in October 2015 and ‘Tackle Testers Choice’ in Trout Fisherman, this new concept in fly line design is sure to be turning heads with its remarkable capabilities in 2016. 
Colour: Buckskin/Hi-Viz Yellow 
Available in three sizes only: #6, #7 and #8 all Floating 
 
 
Whilst designed as an out and out distance casting line, and needing a good back drop to double haul, this line can produce insane casting distance in the right hands and a perfectly balanced rod outfit. In distinctive Ivory head and bright Red running line, ones casting skills and achievements will be the envy of ones neighbours all struggling to reach distant fish and drop offs that can now be achieved. 
Colour: Ivory-Red 
Available in three sizes only: #7 and #8 both Floating 
 
 
For enhanced performance and extended life, each fly line comes with a specially formulated bottle of Snowbee line care, plus two loop connectors in appropriate sizes, to be used with the enclosed line. Be sure to read the instructions on how to get the best performance with your new Snowbee line. 

Specialist Snowbee XS Sub-Surface Fly Lines 

WFBT XS Buzzer Line 
For optimum performance when fishing the ubiquitous and hugely rewarding style of buzzer fishing from the bank or boat. The last 3-4ft of the front taper section is coloured a neutral shade of olive where it has been designed to sink slowly and improve successful ‘hook ups’ and ‘feel’ when straight line nymphing and buzzer fishing. 
 
Colour: Olive/Ivory 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
Sink Rate: Floating / 1.5-2 ips Tip 
 
WFST XS Intermediate Sink Tip 
A sink tip line which exhibits superb casting performance with a 13ft intermediate density sink tip which will hold sub-surface, giving straight line contact with the fly to avoid missed takes whilst depth control is achieved through speed of retrieve. Ideal for serious trout and sea trout anglers. 
 
Colour: Mustard/Ivory 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
Sink Rate: Floating / 1.2-1.8 ips 
 
WFND XS Neutral Density 
The super slow, uniform sink rate of this line is designed to ‘hang’ just sub-surface. Too many lines sink quickly below invisible subsurface fish but this one, once it cuts through the surface, sinks very slowly with immense control and feel, and delightfully memory free but super sensitive low-stretch core in neutral colour. There is not a line made today to match it. 
 
Colour: Mustard 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 1.14 - 1.86 ips 
 
WFI XS Clear Intermediate 
The combination of outstanding Snowbee XS performance, with virtual invisibility, makes this versatile line deadly for all sub-surface fishing, whether buzzer fishing, nymphing, Sea Trout fishing or saltwater. Minimal stretch for ultimate feel, this is a stealth fishing line that every angler should carry on one of their spare spools. 
 
Colour: Clear 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 1.5-2.5 ips 
 
With a low stretch braided core and conventional WF Taper, this line behaves similarly to the Neutral Density (WFND) but will cut through the surface film a little quicker whilst not sinking at the rate of other faster and more conventional intermediate fly lines and continues to perform with massive appeal for all stillwater anglers. 
Colour: Kelly Green/Blue 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 1.5-1.8 ips 
 

XS-Plus XS-tra Distance Fly Lines 

The overall length of all the lines is 120ft (40 yards) and early trials regularly saw the loop to backing joint, rattling through the rod rings! These lines will benefit people of all casting abilities, exceed the performance using traditional profile lines and help reach those fish that were previously just out of casting range, especially when there may be a limited back-cast available. 
Available in Floating, Intermediate and Fast-Sink, these new lines will help you reach those fish that were previously just out of casting range. 
 
Maintaining Snowbee Sinking Lines 
To maintain the performance of all Snowbee sinking lines, regular cleaning and application of Snowbee Degreaser will help keep the line consistent and free of grease and silicone, which will affect sink rate if left untreated. 
XS-XStra Distance Family of lines
EXDF XS-Plus XS-tra Distance Floating 
This very supple line with short Hi-Viz Chartreuse head and Hi-Viz Orange running line will deliver a cast at range with very little back cast, designed for use in tight spaces or simply effortless distance casting for even the modest beginner. The line excels when teamed up with the correctly weighted fly rod and probably the most commonly purchased fly line on the Snowbee ‘balanced outfit’ promotion. 
 
Colour: Chartreuse/Orange 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
 
EXDI XS-Plus XS-tra Distance Intermediate 
5ft shorter in the head than the floating option, to achieve the same casting performance in a higher density, this line can be fished from bank or boat and is suitably balanced to be comfortable to use all day long. Distance casting made easy with the unique profile, the sink rate of 2–2.5ips will allow your flies to be fished at a range of depths to find the fish. Great for damsels and lures or simply a team of wets in traditional loch style from the boat. 
 
Colour: Kelly Green/Orange 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 2–2.5 ips 
 
EXDFS XS-tra Distance Fast Sink 
The shortest head of all the series at just 30ft (just over 9m), this line will fire a long line in all conditions from either bank or boat. Developed from the popular ‘Surf Line’ a short back cast only is required to punch out this fast sinking head. Most popularly used off the bank on still waters this has also been used in temperate saltwater applications and for predator fishing where reaching depth easily and quickly with short shooting head style is ideal. 
 
 
Colour: Dark Green/Orange 
Sizes: WF5 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 5–5.5 ips 
 

XS-Plus Countdown Sinking Lines 

This range has been specifically designed to combine precise sink rates with maximum casting distance. The fly angler can reach extended drop-offs and target deep lying fish, with a line slick enough to do so without the fear and frustration of memory coils and constant tangles
Each line is low stretch for sensitivity and twin-coloured to highlight the optimum loading point for distance casting and performance, the long heads will deliver a line at extreme range from bank or boat, in order to achieve the necessary depth for deep feeding fish. 
 
Suitable for fresh or cold saltwater and available in sizes WF #6, #7, #8 and #9. 
XS-Plus Countdown Sinking Lines family
WFCD2 – XS-Plus Countdown 
In natural olive green with a sky blue running line to help avoid spooking fish but still visible enough to see for fishing depth and control of retrieve. Sink rate 2ins/sec throughout, perfect for fishing nymphs or lures beneath the surface on rivers or Stillwater, close in or at long range. 
 
 
Colour: Olive/Sky Blue 
Sizes: WF6 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 2ins/sec 
 
WFCD3 – XS-Plus Countdown 
With a sink rate of 3ins/sec this has been designed for fishing nymphs or lures in more moderate depths, especially when the wind is up a little or with a booby on the point perhaps to provide a washing line style of fishing. Ideal when the fish are at a depth of 2-3ft and you can get there easily within a few seconds. Twin colour, chestnut brown head with light tan running line. 
 
 
Colour: Brown/Light Tan 
Sizes: WF6 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 3ins/sec 
 
 
WFCD5 – XS-Plus Countdown 
A great casting line with dark brown head providing a sink rate of 5ins/sec and a distinctive, silky smooth blood red running line. Really versatile for a team of sunk lures fished deep and slow, or ripped through the upper surfaces on a windy day. A great mid-water booby line too and phenomenal casting ability with the long head and no memory. Also suitable as a predator line in upper sizes, which will turnover easily and provide extreme casting ability. 
 
Colour: Brown/Red 
Sizes: WF6 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 5ins/sec 
 
 
XSPCD7 – XS-Plus Countdown 
The fastest sinking Snowbee line yet. The density of the charcoal grey head provides a sink rate of 7ins/sec ideal for deep sinking lures, nymphs and boobies off the boat or really quick sinking for boobies and exploring the depths from the bank. The deep blue running line aids angler visibility without spooking the fish. The profile and density provide an excellent distance casting line, capable of quickly reaching the bottom in over 20ft of water. This line will sink about as far as you can cast with a memory free profile that aids casting on the roughest of days. 
 
Colour: Charcoal/Deep Blue 
Sizes: WF6 - WF8 
Sink Rate: 7ins/sec 
 
 

XS-Plus Nano Countdown Sink-Tip Fly Lines 

This series of long head, long casting, sink-tip fly lines has been introduced by request to fill the void between the hugely successful Buzzer Line and our conventional sinking fly lines. 
All feature 50ft heads and 120ft in total length, with the pastel shades and clear tip in all cases, to minimise spooking of any fish. The two tip length options and two sink densities of the range provide a diverse option for perfect control using this increasingly popular modern fishing style. The clear and fine tapered tips of either 7 or 12 feet in length on each density, serve to enhance minimal hinging and any potential casting ‘kick’, characteristic of multi-density and sink-tip fly lines. All are great for stillwater methods but will be versatile in a range of conditions especially for sea trout on the river. 
XS-Plus Nano Countdown Sink-Tip Fly Lines family
WFCDS2-7ST Countdown Slow Sink-Tip 
In a pastel shade of primrose, this is the slowest sinking option in the series. With a 7ft clear tip, and super slick XS-Plus Nano coated and low stretch monofilament core, the line is well equipped for extreme casting and maximum sensitivity, just beneath the surface even at range. 
 
Colour: Clear/Primrose 
Sizes: WF6 - WF8 
Tip Length: 7ft 
Sink Rate: 2ins/sec 
 
WFCDS2-12ST Countdown Slow Sink-Tip 
This line has a longer sinking tip for reaching deeper and fishing a long slow nymph cast, but also handy for ‘washing line’ and strip methods immediately sub surface. 
 
Colour: Clear/Buckskin 
Sizes: WF6 - WF8 
Tip Length: 12ft 
Sink Rate: 2ins/sec 
 
WFCDF4-7ST Countdown Fast Sink-Tip 
A great casting line, with a faster sinking tip that will get the flies off the top at speed. Will fish ‘sink and draw’ well from bank or boat, or again with the ‘washing line’ adding some depth to the top dropper. A great long casting and pulling line too, for the fast retrieve.  
 
Colour: Clear/Lime 
Sizes: WF6 - WF8 
Tip Length: 7ft 
Sink Rate: 4ins/sec 
 
WFCDF4-12ST Countdown Fast Sink-Tip 
The fastest Snowbee sink tip. With a 12ft, 4ips tip, this line will fish buzzers and nymphs deep from a boat or bank and with a 50ft head will fish at range too, if required. The XS Nano finish provides smooth, finger-tip touch control of the retrieve and completes the new sink tip series. Suitable for Sea trout and getting down into deep pits on the river if necessary.  
 
Colour: Clear/Blue 
Sizes: WF6 - WF8 
Tip Length: 12ft 
Sink Rate: 4ins/sec 
 

Classic Fly Lines 

A quality range of Fly Lines at affordable prices. 
For many years, Snowbee has produced some of the best quality fly lines on the market. Our range now includes a small economy priced range of lines aimed at the budget conscious angler. 
At these prices, you might not expect the same supreme performance of the XS range of lines, however they offer good, reliable performance and make an exceptional ‘entry level’ or Combo Outfit line.  
With shorter, steeper tapers, the casting performance is more forgiving and ensures good turn-over of large flies at maximum casting distance. 
Classic Trout 
Available in 30 yard (90ft) trout line options: 
CFF FLOATING - pale yellow; 
CFHV FLOATING HI-VIZ - chartreuse; 
CFI INTERMEDIATE (1.75-2.25 ips) - mid-blue;  
CFFS FAST-SINK - dark green/grey – a range of Fast-Sink lines. In the same, popular weight forward tapers, as the other Classic models, these new lines are a joy to cast and get down to the fish fast, with a sink rate of 4–4.5 ips. 
Classic Trout
Classic Salmon 
CSF Salmon Spey - a 35yd (105ft) floating salmon Spey line with a short 48ft head in peach colour. Great as a budget starter kit for the newcomer to salmon fishing or even for use as a saltwater line with the stronger core but short enough head for overhead casting.

3D Spey Line System 

The ever popular 3D series, with their characteristic tapers, so loved by salmon fishers worldwide, all now boast the new ‘Nano-technology’ coatings for even slicker performance. The revolutionary 3D ‘balanced system’ relies on head weights specifically matched to the ‘Optimum Head Weight’ (OHW) designated on all our Salmon Spey rods for the perfect balance 
On large open rivers there is normally plenty of room for Spey casting and the size of the ‘D’ loop is not a limiting factor Spey casting your way down a tree-lined or steep sided river however adds another dimension. Using a line with too short or too long a head and finding the optimum rod load point is left pretty much to guesswork. The Snowbee development team has tackled this situation head-on and produced a range of lines that are perfectly balanced for Spey casting in just about any river environment.

These heavy, fast taper lines will present big and heavy flies as well as lighter options, with a long enough head to make them suitable for use on long and short Spey rods. Ideal for small rivers with the short heads, but for bigger rivers the convenience of the integral running line combined with the slick XS Nano technology really comes into play as a shooting head. With multi-tips extending to a sink rate of 6-7ips, you can easily plunge the depths and seek fish holding or running deep too.  
Available in floating density, with a set of 4 5.3m 'tips' all fitted with welded loops for quick and easy exchange 
The Floating Multi-Tip outfit comes with 4 ‘Tips’; Floating, Intermediate (1.5-2ips), Slow-Sink (3ips) and Fast-Sink (5ips) This shooting head option can be used and quickly interchangeable with the 120 ft Salmon Running Line or a heavy Monofilament/ Braided running line for those that prefer either option.

Scandinavian Spey & Switch Lines 

A range of ‘Skagit’ style Scandinavian Spey and Switch lines to perfectly match today's ‘new generation’ of Salmon rods. 
The shorter heads on the Scandinavian Spey, loads the rod quickly at short range, shoots like a dream and has the turnover of a traditional Spey line. The fast front taper, is especially suited to fishing with our Poly Coated Leaders, adding an extra dimension to fly presentation.

Snowbee 'Switch' Fly Line 

A long shallow front taper provides a smooth energy transfer for controlled and accurate presentation. Switch lines are ideally fished with a Snowbee Poly-Coated Leader, allowing different fishing depths, depending on the density used. A short, steep rear taper compresses the weight into the head where it’s needed and connects smoothly to a fine diameter, continuous running line for minimum friction and maximum shootability.

XS-Plus Tropics Saltwater Fly Lines 

Saltwater fly lines covering all the options required by the progressive saltwater fly fisher. 
In the past, many fly line manufacturers have relied on a stiff monofilament core, to prevent their saltwater fly lines going ‘limp and sticky’ in tropical conditions. 
By careful manipulation of our ‘Nano Technology’ coating material, we have developed a new coating which is harder than usual, to withstand the rigours of the saltwater environment, but more importantly, retains its characteristics, even in the searing heat of the tropics, or on the hot deck of a flats skiff. This allows us to retain a core line, which ensures the supple, memory-free properties, customers have come to know and expect from a Snowbee fly line. This also makes the new range ideal for temperate climates, when fishing for striped or European bass. 
TSWP-F Tropics Floating ‘Presentation' Line 
A floating line with a longer head and extended tapers, designed for smaller flies and precise presentation. The ideal line when ‘sight fishing’ for bonefish, permit, jacks etc., where a smooth and quiet ‘lay-down’ of the fly is essential. The colour change at the back of the head, notifies the precise shoot point, which together with the fine running line makes distance casting effortless. 
 
Colour: Lt.Blue/Aqua 
Sizes: #7 - #10 
Sink Rate: Floating 
 
TSWBF-F Tropics Floating 'Big Fly' Line 
Short, steep tapers and a short head designed for turning over big flies in confined spaces. Ideal when fishing big flies in amongst mangroves, or overhanging vegetation for tarpon, or any ‘open water’ application where big flies are essential. A colour change for the running line notifies the precise shoot point when longer casts are required. 
 
Colour: Aqua/Dk.Blue 
Sizes: #8 - #12 
Sink Rate: Floating 
 
TSWS-ST Tropics ‘Spectre’ Line 
For a more ‘stealthy’ approach the ‘Spectre’ line has the same long head profile as our Presentation line, for delicate presentation. A floating head and running- line, with a 12ft clear intermediate tip. The 2-2.5ips tip will take flies down deeper, without spooking the quarry. 
 
Colour: Clear/Aqua 
Sizes: #7 - #12 
Sink Rate: 2-2.5ips 
 
TSWDC-FS Tropics 'Depth Charge' Line 
When you need to get down deep and fast with either short or long casts, our new Tropics ‘Depth-Charge’ delivers on all counts. The short, shooting head profile and fine running line, will punch through a stiff wind effortlessly, whilst the 5-6 ips fast-sink head will get your fly down fast, to the ‘strike zone’. The colour change at the back of the head, notifies the precise 'shoot point' making distance casting effortless. 
 
Colour: Graphite/Aqua 
Sizes: #8 - #12 
Sink Rate: 5-6ips 
 

Braided Dacron Backing 

Braided Dacron Backing Line 
Our braided Dacron backing line is a top-quality, low diameter backing made from 100% Polyester Dacron fibres. The low diameter and near zero stretch, coupled with the range of sizes and colours, make this an ideal backing line for all requirements, whether Trout, Salmon or Saltwater. For those wanting longer lengths, our 100m spools come packed 5 to a box, joined or we have bulk 1,250m spools. 
 
Sizes: 20lb B.S. (Trout) & 30lb B.S. (Salmon) in 100m spools or 1,250m bulk spools 
Colours: White or Hi-Viz Yellow 
Diameter: 20lb 0.38mm; 30lb 0.43mm 
 

Fly Line Cleaning Accessories 

SLSK Snowbee Line Slick 
A silicon based fly line lubricant, which reduces friction and resistance through the rings, allowing faster line speed at all times. Helps protect fly lines from damage and the effects of harmful chemicals. 
 
SFLD Snowbee Fly-Line Degreaser 
Our degreaser is the only known silicone solvent, which effectively removes all traces of silicone or grease from the fly line, allowing it to cut quickly through the surface.
